Dozens of power industry executives who flew to Washington for meetings told EPA Administrator Scott Pruitt that they are against the administration simply rescinding the Clean Power Plan. Rather, they said they’d like to see EPA draft a less stringent carbon regulation that still sets efficiency standards for coal plants. That would give the industry certainty to make planning decisions, they said. Company executives told Pruitt on Monday that having a regulation on the books would help them plan for the future and send a signal to state regulators and policymakers that utilities are not going to build new coal plants.
